Session Abstract

Considering a career in development outside the academy? CASID 2021 will host a roundtable discussion and workshop with a group of development graduates and professionals working in a diverse array of roles in within and beyond the field. The panelists will share their own experiences of making the decision to pursue alternative career paths, offering advice to students and recent graduates about how to chart a path forward beyond the academy. This will be followed by more in depth, workshop style discussions around key themes and sectors in plenary and breakout groups to more deeply explore these paths and processes.

Panelists include: Julie Crowley, IDRC; Kate Grantham, FemDev; Carly Hayes GAC; Paola Ortiz, SSHRC; Deborah Simpson, OXFAM Canada.
